A PIL may be filed like a Civil Writ Petition. However, in the past the Hon´ble Supreme Court of India has treated even letters addressed to the court as PIL. In “Peopl´s Democratic Union V/s Union of Inidia”, a letter addressed by the petitioner organization seeking a direction against the respondents for ensuring observance of the provisions of famous labour laws in relation to workmen employed in the construction work of projects connected with the Asian games was entertained as a PIL.
